Wah

Emulating the Clyde wah

You can Emulate the Clyde Wah by setting the Wah Block to:

  • TYPE: Bandpass
  • FMIN: 369hz
  • FMAX: 2369hz
  • RES: 4.17
  • TRACK: 5.08

Mu-Tron envelope filter

Here are my settings for a Mu-Tron type of envelope follower:

Wah block:

  • TYPE - bandpass
  • FMIN - 256Hz
  • FMAX - 2775Hz
  • RES - 5.6
  • TRACK - 2
  • FREQ - assigned to envelope. I suggest initially leaving the assign settings at their default and tweaking the controller params. Later, you can come back to this page and do some more subtle shifting of the envelope tracking.

Envelope Controller:

  • THRESH - -40
  • ATTACK - 62ms
  • RELEASE - 26ms
  • GAIN - 1.26

The dynamics of your playing are an essential part of the behavior of any effect that is controlled by the signal envelope. For that reason, you will almost certainly have to alter the above settings to get the sound you want.

Compression

Emulating the Dyna Comp

The MXR Dyna Comp is a classic guitar compressor pedal. From web research, its features were listed as follows:

  • Limiting Threshold Adjustable from 4-80 mV
  • Compression Adjustable from 15-40 dB
  • Attack Time 4mS at center ATTACK setting
  • Decay Time 1.2 Sec

To replicate this on the Axe-Fx, use these settings:

  • ATT - 9.9 (very fast)
  • REL - 1.0 (very slow)
  • COMP - 10
  • THRSH - -55

By one report, it "sounds more like a Keeley."
